Transition

I once encountered a mountain, I didn’t want to climb So, I stood and viewed its beauty, left everything else behind I once encountered pouring rain and didn’t want to get wet I chose to watch and listen to soothing sound without regret I once felt pain in my heart so deep, I couldn’t move so I had to re-start All the things I had abandoned, so that I would not fall apart I once stood in a graveyard, afraid to face the next day Left gifts by a gravestone, while I stood and chose to pray Many times through the years, beaten by loss and sorrow Released by tears that I shed, with dreams I chose to follow I once wondered while standing in a meadow, why I am still here? So, I assumed it is to give more, open up and overcome my fear Through the valleys and peaks of life, I know I did my best To keep on going at all costs and challenge every single test Moving through transition with things that came my way Led me here so I am able, to write about it all today Heidi Sands 11/19/18

Heidi, I can picture the meadow, the mountain, and the rain. Emotions pulled in every direction as the years steadily flow away. But hope reigns supreme, it's Christmas Eve. -Richard

Hi Heidi, a most creative work flows from a golden pen. One draws inspiration from your words Heidi. I did read, with tears falling, as the words did caress my heart. This is such a wonderful write. This one does surely sing Heidi. A fave. Have a wonderful Tuesday. Hugs....Mike. XX

Such an beautifully inspirational poem Heidi. We all face things differently but if we find our happiness in the end and are able to express it as nicely as you have, then it was ok.
